Week 4: Outline

Step 1: Web Text I had a clear topic and supporting points for the sections I shared. The topic was based on the examination of the relationship between bullying and suicides among students in schools. The supporting points were the statistics obtained in schools regarding the number of suicides and how many of the cases have been linked to bullying, the link between bullying and depression, and the testimonies of several students about their experiences with bullying. After laying down my main points, I found that need more research to understand the topic. A survey was more preferable because it focused on the experiences of students and how bullying has affected them psychologically. Further, I...

Themes

Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Themes The Song Title: Hall of Fame Artist: The Script featuring Will.I.Am Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk48xRzuNvA Although the theme of the American dream is represented in many songs, the Script’s Hall of Fame arguably does the best job in representing this motif in its lyrics. The dominant message in the song is that nothing is impossible to accomplish if a person has the desire, puts the mind in it, and works diligently towards achieving it. The song mentions being in the hall of fame, which could be interpreted to mean living the American dream of fiscal independence, success, and contentment. The lyrics seem to caution that while the...

Public Speaking 1 Student’s Name Institutional Affiliation Public Speaking 1 Passion not only natures human existence but also fuels motivation and unlocks a myriad of opportunities.

Prevalent Interventions for Development of Daily Living Skills in Educational Setting

Literature Review Prevalent Interventions for Development of Daily Living Skills in Educational Setting Hypotheses on the development of daily living skills in an educational setting are multifaceted but, appear not to be well grounded in both practices and issue specific intervention strategies. The gap in knowledge seems to be failing to offer theoretical frameworks in defining intervention strategies that are specific to the education setting. According to Ramdoss et al. (2011), a computer-based model is an intervention strategy that focuses on individuals with intellectual disabilities. Although Ramdoss et al. (2011) provide a theoretical model of integrating both the computer model and...
